Pacifica on the Map
Where is Pacifica?
Oh here we are, Pacifica will be added to the tourist lodging map of the San Mateo County Tourism Business Improvement District (BID) thanks to Susan Vellone (President) and the 2010 Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
"Inclusion in the (BID) District means that Pacifica will be marketed by and included in materials distributed by the San Mateo County Convention and Visitor's Bureau (SMCCVB). This will benefit not only the hotels through increased occupancy but the entire community through increased spending in local business." City Council Agenda, 4/26/10 Item 9, page 35, also see pages 35-39 http://www.cityofpacifica.org/civica/filebank/blobdload.asp?BlobID=3821
Previously Pacifica has been no where to be found on the San Mateo County Convention and Visitors Bureau lodging map http://chambertopia.com/sanmateocounty/business-directory/accommodations/ . Three (3) years ago Barbara Arietta discovered Pacifica was not on the SMCCVB map. She completed a research binder study, showing city economic advantages, then talked with Chamber leadership, each city councilmember, and hotel/motel owners/managers. And, even though city council has inserted itself into representation at Chamber board meetings no progress has occurred until now. This year, this 2010 Chamber of Commerce is on the move to improve business in Pacifica. Remember to shop and play in Pacifica when possible.
